Shark Gets Creative Recognition and Ink in Worldwide Design Publication - Creativity 34.


BURLINGTON, VT – Recent print advertising by Shark Communications for the State of Vermont's Captive Insurance division has been selected to be included in the upcoming Creativity Annual, a showcase of outstanding advertising and design from around the world. Selected from thousands of entries from within the United States and more than 40 countries worldwide, Shark's work for the state's insurance division will be featured in this year’s 400-page, full-color, hard bound edition that is used as a reference for colleges, universities, and design schools, as well as advertising and design agencies around the world. The winning ad, titled “Gold Standard,” was the first in a series created to communicate Vermont’s leading position in the captive insurance industry. The ad features a golden sunset behind Vermont’s mountains with the headline, “In the World of Captive Insurance Domiciles, There Really is a Gold Standard.” Shark Creative Director Peter Jacobs wrote and created the ad along with design and production from Shark Art Directors Faith Livak and Rick Brokaw.
